The paintings always feature childlike, androgynous figures with a large circular head, rounded body and darkened, almond shaped eyes. Through these highly stylised, innocent looking characters the artist revisits his childhood, expresses his innermost feelings and explores various human emotions and interactions…However, his latest work is quite different. The title of the series, It’s No Longer About Me, clearly indicates a major shift in direction for the artist. This is manifested by the change in the look of his signature figures. They appear more real and grown up and their features and bodies are better defined, especially their eyes. Instead of dark, empty, cavernous orbs that reveal nothing, the figures now have piercing, expressive eyes that connect with the viewer and convey a deep sense of sadness.
